  • Log in to Telewerkportaal
  • Click next to the VDI on the button “Details”
  • Click on the button “Restart”

Contact the servicedesk if it is not possible to restart the VDI.

Issues after repeated attempts of installing Citrix Receiver (Windows)

If all other options do not offer a solution.

You have removed the Citrix client by using the provided procedure for Windows. You have restarted your system and started the installation again followed by another restart of your computer. Despite your efforts, it is still not possible to make a connection with the Teleworkportal. Possibly something has changed in the settings of your user account or “fallen” and you receive uninformative error messages. This is not something the average computer user can solve.

A tool that we use with much success is creating an additional user on your computer for Apple or Windows systems. The previous actions you have performed will still come in handy! Below you will find the procedure how to add an additional user on your system which might enable you to approach the Teleworkportaal.

Add new user account:

In Windows 7 click the Windows Start button, Control Panel, User Accounts and Family Safety. Then click Manage another account. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. Now click Create a new account. Type the desired name for the user (eg. Telework Portal), and click an account type, and click Create Account.

In Windows 8/10 are the first steps are equal: you choose the Windows key + X, choose from the menu that opens, select “Control Panel”. In the new screen, select User Accounts” and then “Manage another account”. A screen is shown with the existing users on your computer. Under the same screen you have the option to “add a new user in PC Settings“.

For Windows 8 you choose Add an account”, then in the new window (on the bottom) choose for “Logging without Microsoft account (not recommended)“, followed by choosing for “Local account” in the next screen. Then choose a logical user name (eg. Telework Portal) with password and password hint, then in the next screen finish the procedure. Log in now with the new account and try again Telework Portal.

Under Windows 10, choose the option “Add someone else to this PCin the Accounts screen under the header “Other users”. We want a local account, and therefor we select the line The person I want to add has no email address.” In the new window, select on the bottom Add user without Microsoft account.” Then choose a logical user name (eg. Telework Portal) with password, and then in the next screen to complete. Log in now with the new account and try again Telework Portal.

Improve Skype sessions on a VDI

Do you use your own device (byod) together with a dedicated VDI and could the quality of your Skype sessions be improved? Network latency between your own device and your VDI might be the cause. Citrix has released software to optimize the connection for your Skype sessions.

The software contains two packages: one to be installed on your personal Windows 7 VDI and is available via the RaboShop. The second is to be downloaded by yourself and needs to be installed on your own device.

The HDX RealTime Connector is available via the RaboShop, but only for users of a dedicated Windows 7 VDI! Within the RaboShop (which is in Dutch) you search for ‘DTB1140’ (Software Aanvraag). Next use the link for ‘Bestelformulier’ (order form) and from there select the following.

  • ‘Voor 1 of meerdere personen 1 werkplek software’ (one or more persons 1 VDI software)
  • “Platformnaam”: W7 or W7X64
  • Search in the form under the head Software for: HDX* <– include*

You need to install the client software (HDX RealTime Media Engine) on your own device (Windows\Mac\Linux) and not on the VDI!. This is to be downloaded via the next link: For Windows users two packages are available either the HDX RealTime Media Engine itself or combined with the Citrix Receiver just in case you needed that. For installing the software just follow the default values.

Attention: The HDX RealTime Connector should only be ordered for your primary VDI from where your Skype sessions are started. The first VDI equipped with the HDX RealTime Connector you connect to will have advantage of an optimized connection. The client software is to be installed on your own device at your own risk, there will be no support from the helpdesk.


In the following situations the connection is and is not optimized.

When having a non-optimized connection it could be that the HDX RealTime Media Engine is not correctly installed on your own device. It could also be that case that you are connected to two different VDI bot equipped with the HDX RealTime Connector and only the first connection will be optimized.

Windows byod
If you keep receiving messages about an un-optimized connection check your Windows firewall to see if the Citrix Media Engine Services is allowed over TCP and UDP. You could add them manually or try reinstalling the client application.

Roadmap for VDI Re-Disconnect Problems – Windows

Roadmap for Re-\Disconnects VDI

From a private laptop (not Rabo)=BYOD

NOTE: Perform these steps only if Re-\Disconnects or delays between your BYOD and VDI occur regularly. If you are satisfied with how your BYOD is working, you can always read this plan as “FYI”.

This checklist aims to optimally configure the Apple BYOD workplace for use of VDI at Rabobank. The steps can be performed by the user itself. Any support here should be the responsibility of the external supplier. The Rabobank Service Desk will not provide support because it not concerns a Rabobank device.


Host = BYOD PrivateWorkplace of the User
VDI = The Virtual Rabobank Workplace

Control steps / Recommendations

Use only one single Display

2 beeldschermen

It has been found that the use of two or more display screens increases the likelihood of a re- / disconnect. It is therefore recommended to switch back to a single display screen (either built-in or externally connected).

Check the power settings for the Wireless Network Adaptor on your laptop (host)

Follow for windowslogoWindows 7 the instructions discribed at (also available on external networks).

Follow for windowslogoWindows 8 (8.1) the instructions discribed at (also available on external networks).

Settings for “Power Options” should be set to the “High Performance” plan (for both working “On battery” as well as “Plugged In”).

This will prevent the system from allowing the wireless network interface to be suspended.

Verify the version of the driver for the wireless network interface on the laptop (host)


Make sure to use the vendor provided driver and update it to the most recent version. Microsoft native drivers are functional, however they are in most cases insufficiently effective for use with VDI. For more information on the most suitable driver for your system, please visit the vendor site. To find out the vendor and model of your wireless network interface:

Start a “command prompt” (through Start > Run > “cmd” (followed by enter)

Type netsh wlan show drivers

(here is an example of the output on a Windows OS)

Verify the version of the Citrix Receiver on the laptop (Host)

Right-click the Citrix Receiver icon citrixreceiverin the taskbar (or through the hidden icons) and click “about” or “Advanced Preferences” (in newer versions). This will show the installed receiver version (most recent version to date is

Check the version you installed and download the Citrix Receiver to your laptop (host) via:

If you experience installation issues with the Citrix Receiver, please refer to the following Citrix article:

Check Windows Updates on the laptop (Host)

Open “Windows Update” in the start menu and make sure all important and optional updates are installed. If not, apply all available updates to your system.

Use 5 GHz network instead of 2,4 GHz network

Often using the 5 GHz network will provide a more stable VDI connection. To find out if the wireless network interface is capable of using the 5 Ghz network follow next steps:

Start a command prompt (through Start > Run > “cmd” (followed by enter)

Type netsh wlan show drivers

The output should contain 802.11a, 802.11ac or 802.11n for the interface to be able to connect to the 5GHz network.
To find out the current connection to the wireless network:

Start a command prompt (through Start > Run > “cmd” (followed by enter)

Type netsh wlan show interfaces

This will show similar output on a Windows host:

If the value for “channel” is 15 or higher, the host is connected to the 5 GHz network. Signal is an indicator for signal strength and should be at least 40% (or higher). If signal strength is too low, find another desk where the signal is sufficient.

Dongles: (usb network dongle)

If the installed wireless network interface does not support 5GHz networks and you are experiencing re- or disconnects, consider using another wireless network interface.

IT Nederland successfully tested two models of 5GHz USB wireless network interface:

Dongles are to be purchased on own account.


If all of the above steps are complete and have not led to satisfactory results with regards to VDI, we advise you to change your client device (i.e. use another laptop for working with Rabobank VDI). The end-user is responsible for obtaining another device at his/her employer.

Configuring two monitors and get VDI on fullscreen

  • Click on the small bar (with an arrow) at the top of the screen. You now see the bar expanding where you see a few options.
  • Click on the icon ‘Window’.
  • Drag the Windowed screen to the middle of the two monitors.
  • Dubbel click on the upper bar of the windowed screen
  • The VDI should now be in fullscreen mode on two monitors.

Update 16/03/2015 Windows 8.1 Issues with fullscreen mode

Laptop users could experience some issues like flickerings screens or split screens in fullscreen mode. This problem is reported by Windows 8.1 users working on a laptop with high resolutions.

The problem occurs when the the text or icon size is changed. To solve this issue you could try the following:

  • Right click on the Windows start button and select ‘Control Panel’
  • Select ‘Display’
  • Here you can configure the size of Text and Icons, configure it to small.
